Hidden Treasures

Sometimes our chickens think they are still wild! They lay their eggs all around the yard because we do let them free range throughout the day. While we were clearing land for the garden we found this treasure. We stopped what we were doing and gathered up our potential treasure.

Just like us the birds have forgotten where their home is and are nesting anywhere.How often have we spent so much time running around that our homes are forgotten. Either they are unkempt, poorly stocked and we cannot remember the last time we sat down to have a meal or just talk to a child.

I love how Titus reminds us to " be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God." Titus 2:5

Let us not be like the man who forgets who he is after he looks into the mirror but let us always remember who we are in the Lord.

Whenever our ducks and geese lay eggs, we NEVER know where to look, some times they will just plop out one in the middle of the field, and some times they go to the nest spot, and some times not... that's when we have to look.. :) We search the yard high and low... and sometimes never find any....
